Google Autofill on Android now supports biometric authentication

Back in January, we discovered that Google was testing biometric authentication support for its first-party Autofill service. Now, this feature appears to be rolling out to Google Autofill via a recent update to Google Play Services. The new feature means that users can require successful biometric authentication before information can be filled into a form. Before,...

Google Chrome for Android is getting a redesigned Autofill UI

One of the single most useful and time-saving features of Android is Autofill. It makes the process of setting up a new phone a breeze. You don't have to worry about typing a bunch of usernames and passwords for every app you use. This is especially useful in the browser, and it looks like Chrome...

Google Autofill tests biometric authentication for passwords and payments

With Android 8.0 Oreo, Google finally added highly requested Autofill API, allowing third-party password managers to easily and securely fill in passwords and payment info in apps without relying on the old accessibility workaround.

Autofill is one of the biggest, and most publicized new features introduced with the release of Android 8.0 Oreo. Many different password managing apps, like LastPass, have already implemented this new API into their applications. And while it can prove to be quite the improvement over the previous Autofill implementations using Accessibility Services, there's a...

Android O’s Autofill Framework will Finally Resolve a Long-Standing Lag Issue with Password Managers

It's already been a month since Google released the first Android O Developer Preview (time sure flies by fast!), and as with any new version of Android - there's a lot to dig into. We've published plenty of articles about Android O already, but there's one feature that I feel hasn't really received the attention it...

AgileBits, the developers behind 1Password, are showing off what Android O's new password autofill framework will look like once implemented.
